THEIR DYNASTY WILL LIVE ON FOREVER
Well folks, this is it. After 20 seasons and 14 years, Keeping Up With The Kardashians is finally coming to an end. Whether you love them, hate them, or are just genuinely confused about why they’re famous, the Kardashian dynasty has been a pop culture staple has proved time and time again to be the gift that keeps on giving. Even if you’ve never watched an episode, there’s no doubt you’ve seen the countless memes, heard the iconic one-liners, or even debated whether or not to quit your current job to become a ‘momager.’ A lot can happen in 14 years, especially if your daily life primarily consists of being famous for being famous. So without further adieu, here are ten things that haven’t lasted as long as Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
- Rob and Blac Chyna’s Relationship
If you’re anything like me (and if you’re reading this article, you probably are), you’ll probably remember Robert Kardashian’s tumultuous relationship with Blac Chyna which ended in multiple lawsuits and restraining orders from both parties. Yikes. The two were on-again-off-again from 2016-2019 and share daughter Dream. You can find out all the juicy details of their whirlwind relationship here.
2. Kanye’s Presidential Campaign
Remember when Kanye announced he was running for president and everyone thought it was a joke? Then he actually got his name on the ballots in some states? Only in 2020.
3. Khloe’s Prison Stint
During the very first season of the show, Khloe got sentenced to 30 days in prison for violating probation for a DUI. Conveniently enough, however, she was released back to her family after a mere three hours in confinement. Turns out the prison was overcrowded and they simply didn’t have enough room for her. Khloe’s drama was outshined by Kim though, who was focused more on taking selfies than her sister’s impending imprisonment.
4. Kim’s Lost Diamond Earring
Once upon a time in the waters of Bora Bora, Kim Kardashian lost a $75,000 diamond earring. Whilst Kim was panicking and crying hysterically, Kourtney delivers one of the most iconic lines ever said on television: “Kim, there’s people that are dying.” While the world is still recovering from seeing that epic reality check, Kylie jumps into the water and actually manages to find the missing jewelry. In reality, the earring was really only missing for about 2 minutes.
5. Khloe and Lamar
In 2009, Khloe and Lamar Odom got married after just one month of dating. After five years, Khloe filed for divorce in 2014. After Lamar’s overdose in 2015, Khloe called off the divorce in order to help him recover, but in 2016 she filed again. The two are now officially divorced and have moved on with other people, but they still throw some occasional shade at each other from time to time. Never a dull moment!
6. Kylie and Tyga
Before Kylie was with Travis, she was in a controversial relationship with rapper Tyga. Why was it controversial you ask? There was a seven-year age gap between the two. Normally, age gaps aren’t the end of the world—after all, age is but a number and love has no bounds—but Kylie was only 17 when they started dating, making her a minor in a relationship with an adult. To make things even more complicated, Tyga Blac Chyna’s ex. Yep, the same Black Chyna who went on to date Robert Kardashian. What a small world! You can find a complete timeline of Kyga’s relationship here.
7. Kylie and Travis
About a month after breaking up with Tyga, Kylie and Travis Scott started dating. While it’s generally unclear when their relationship officially started, the two were spotted at Coachella together in April 2017. In February 2018 after uncharacteristic months of silence, Kylie announced that surprise! She had just given birth to her and Travis’ baby Stormi. The two parents stayed together for a while but broke up in October of 2019. While the two are still reportedly broken up, insiders feel like their love story isn’t over just yet. I suppose only time will tell.
8. Kris’ Pet Monkey
How do you deal with empty-nest syndromes? Adopt a pet of course! That’s exactly what Kim and her sisters did for their mom. However, it couldn’t be just a normal pet—these are the Kardashian’s we’re talking about! Instead of giving their mom a dog or cat, they gave her a monkey. While Kris does love Susie the monkey, she proves to be a little too much work and doesn’t stick around for long before being returned.
9. Kylie’s Show Life of Kylie
In 2017, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan starred in her own reality show, appropriately titled Life of Kylie. Unfortunately for the beauty mogul, the show (which averaged ratings of 3.6/10) lasted a whopping one season before getting canceled.
10. Kim and Kanye’s Marriage
At the beginning of the year, rumors about an alleged Kimye divorce began circling the internet. Neither Kim nor Kanye have yet to officially address these rumors, but in mid-February, it was reported that Kim had filed divorce paperwork and hired an attorney, which is a pretty clear statement. There’s no doubt that their split will be a major storyline of the show’s final season. This story is currently unfolding, and you can find a complete timeline of their relationship here.
Well, there you have it. Even though their show may be coming to a close, I think we all know deep down that the Kardashians aren’t going anywhere.
